The Force will definitely be with you this weekend if you strap on your lightsaber and step into your land cruiser for a trip to the LEGOLAND® Windsor Resort for a Star Wars™ spectacular.

The theme park is celebrating the opening of the NEW LEGO® Star Wars™ Gallery in the LEGO® Star Wars™ Miniland Model Display from May 4 – 6.

Would-be Jedi knights of all ages can dress up and join in the fun along with 100 costume characters from the 501st UK Garrison and guests can enjoy a host of activities during the three themed Star Wars™ days, including a gigantic LEGO StarWars™ mosaic build.

LEGO building skills will be put to the test as guests join the resort’s professional model making team in a mammoth building project using more than 80,500 bricks to create a 4m high LEGO Star Wars™ mosaic of R2-D2 – voted by fans as their favourite character in the new Star Wars™ Gallery.

They will also be able to join them building a life-size LEGO model of Yoda and would-be Jedi juniors can hone their lightsaber skills at the Jedi training camp. Star Wars’™ costumed characters will march through the resort daily and guests can check out a life-size replica of Luke Skywalker’s famous StarWars™ landspeeder.

Daily fancy dress costume competitions with LEGOLAND goodies as prizes will be up for grabs and The Imagination Theatre will be showing an exclusive big screen film premiere of the ‘LEGOStar Wars: The Empire Strikes Out’ alongside ‘LEGO Star Wars: The Padawan Menace’.  Plus you can try and spot the LEGO Star Wars™ Minifigures hiding out amongst the famous landmarks in Miniland.

New for 2013 - the LEGO Star Wars™ Gallery joins the LEGO Star Wars™ Miniland Model Display and features twelve 3-foot-high LEGO models of the most famous Star Wars™ heroes and villains including Luke Skywalker, Princess Leia, Chewbacca and even Yoda – plus, of course, the fans’ favourite - R2-D2.

Using over 1.5 million LEGO bricks, the LEGO Star Wars™ Miniland Model Display recreates seven of the most iconic scenes from the legendary movies and the animated TV series Star Wars: The CloneWars™.
